The Masked Dancer judge Oti Mabuse, 30, has reunited with her Strictly Come Dancing partner Bill Bailey, 56, six months following their win of the BBC dance competition. Walking down the BAFTA Red Carpet ahead of the ceremony later this evening, the South-African dance pro spoke to presenter Tom Allen and revealed that she was most excited at the prospect of being reunited with comedian Bill again, who she hadn’t seen since they won the coveted Glitterball trophy in December last year. However, the Have I Got News For You star jokingly took issue with a rumour Oti had started about him starring on the show The Masked Dancer.

Listen, I’ve got a bone to pick with you

Speaking to Tom, the star looked stunning in an ivory dress which featured a plunging sweetheart neckline and sexy split up the side.

With her hair gently curled with one side tucked behind one ear, The Masked Dancer judge was epitome of glamorous as diamond earrings hang from her ears.

Comedian Tom congratulated the star on her Strictly wins, but immediately put his foot in his mouth.

He said: “Congratulations, third time winner.”

Oti jumped in to correct him: “Second, second, I mean, If you want to say three I’m not going to stop you”, she laughed.

“Reigning champion”, he added, before asking the star how she felt.

“Amazing, do you know what, this will be the first time I get to see Bill”, she admitted, before adding: “I haven’t seen him”.

“Nobody sees anybody anymore”, Tom quipped.

Oti agreed, but added that her priority was being reunited with her former dance partner.

She said: “No, so I’m really excited about that, just to be here obviously to see some incredible, incredible people but also Bill

Tom agreed: “I think everyone wants to see you and Bill, so that’s perfect isn’t it”.

Taking to social media minutes later, Oti revealed that she had finally been reunited with the comedian.

Inhaling a deep breath, the star grinned from ear to ear as she shared the joyous news.

“You see this and this”, she said while pointing to her cheeks and wide smile.

“This is joy because of this”, she said while panning the camera round to reveal Bill sitting a few feet away from her as he waved hello.

Having enjoyed catching up, Oti exclaimed: “We’re just chill-chilling! Boaty McBoatface back in the building!”.

“Ah no”, sighed Bill, before adding: “I thought we got away from all of that”.

He continued: “Listen, I’ve got a bone to pick with you”, he started as Oti roared with laughter.

Bill continued: “You suggested I might be rubber chicken on The Masked Dancer, and I had all these people going, ‘Bill, are you the chicken?'”

Oti replied: “You are a rubber chicken, you’re my rubber chicken!” as the comedian did an impression of the bird.
